How to Tie Poppers for Salt- and Fresh Water (Orvis Fly Fishing)
Tim Flagler of Tightline Productions provides two videos on how to tie and paint saltwater and freshwater poppers. These look pretty fun, and if you want some easy poppers to start with you should check out Flymen Fishing Company’s Surface Seducer Double Barrel Popper & Slider Bodies.
